who are hurting. and every day, we are working to put our economy back on track and put america back to work. but even as we dig our way out of this deep hole, it's important that we not lose sight of what led us into this mess in the first place. this economic crisis began as a financial crisis, when banks and financial institutions took huge, reckless risks in pursuit of quick profits and massive bonuses. when the dust settled and this binge of irresponsibility was over, several of the world's oldest and largest financial institutions had collapsed or were on the verge of doing so, markets plummeted, credit dried up and jobs were vanishing by the hundreds of thousands each month. we were on the police miss of a second great depression. to avoid this calamity the american people who are already stling in their own right were forced to rescue financial firms facing crisis largely of their own creation, and that rescue, undertaken by the previous administration, was deeply offensive, but it was a necessary thing to do. and it succeeded in stabilizing the financial system and helping t

billion. bank of america and goldman sachs received billions and billions of our taxpayer money, but they already paid back their t.a.r.p. money, so this would be a second go round by the federal government. and the argument here is, it could be, that again, some of these big banks benefited most so that's why they're going to have additional fees, but the argument against could be, well, if you charge these big banks extra fees and those fees get passed on to us, the taxpayer that funded some of their recovery already, also, if you charge them more, maybe they lend less which is the whole point of t.a.r.p. in the first place, also, to increase lending. it's a difficult scenario, but will we see those fees in the budget proposal we'll see early next month, that's one idea. now, as the treasury is looking at its t.a.r.p. investment, we have this other piece of news as well. the federal reserve, which is not a part of the federal government, actually reaped a big profit this year with some of its own investments that have to do with looking at the security market that wall street,
